the purl bee

went down to the purl bee last weekend figuring i'd pick out some fabric for pillows. my apartment needs some color, and it'll take too long to knit a pillow cover... they have so many wonderful choices that i had a really hard time actually picking something out. it's the same type of space as the purl, and only two doors down. i made rudy a new dog bed in a gray fabric that has a bright orange california poppy print - speaking with the shop girl as she rang me up i learned that she's from berkley, ca and so is most of the staff. i'm also from the bay area. we both agreed on loving new york.

what we did yesterday

looking back at some of the reason's people used to knit...Why We Knit is an intersting take on why we used to knit "During the Civil War needles were picked up to heed the call of soldiers requesting socks. Later, the armies of World War II requested mass amounts of knitted mittens and cap-mufflers to be sent to them from overseas. In the sixties knitted wear was a leading fashion trend (202). And after a large decline in the eighties, knitting slowly popularized and has now, in the new century, become all the rage."
